High snow levels indicate weak power prices in the Nordics this summer

Electricity prices in the Nordic countries are likely to be unusually low this summer amid high inflows to hydropower plants, caused by a combination of a very snow-rich winter and late snowmelt.

Global fossil CO2 emissions dropped by 17% amid coronavirus lockdowns

Daily global fossil CO2 emissions fell by 17% in early April 2020 compared to 2019 amid coronavirus lockdowns in most countries, with full-year 2020 emissions set to decrease by up to 7% depending on future social distancing.

4C – Climate-Carbon Interactions in the Current Century

The EU-funded project 4C (Climate-Carbon Interactions in the Current Century) aims to fill the knowledge gap surrounding climate sensitivity to carbon dioxide emissions by reducing the uncertainty in our quantitative understanding of carbon-climate interactions and feedbacks.

Seasonal forecasts: Useful information, for what?

Although scientists have spent a considerable amount of time making long-term forecasts more reliable, they are little used by business. Close collaboration with the electricity sector has given us an opportunity to understand why, writes CICERO researcher and economist Asbjørn Aaheim.

ACACIA – Advancing the Science for Aviation and Climate

The EU-funded project ACACIA (Advancing the Science for Aviation and Climate) aims to provide improved scientific knowledge of the non-CO2 impacts from aviation emissions of relevance for the development of harmonised policies and regulations for a more climate-friendly aviation system.

Better seasonal forecasts can help the transition to renewable energy

The transition to renewable energy makes it more important for power producers to get accurate information about the weather to come. Climate scientists are currently investing considerable effort and resources to help them get better long-term forecasts.
